I promised last week that Saturday Success Story will resume today, with Rowena Sy-Santos of Keyks (whose story is already in the line up) – however I just can not end 2011 without sharing with you the best of 2011 here at AMSDaily.

It has been an eventful year from AMSDaily and I would like to THANK YOU dear readers for your continued support. Thank you for everything! Thank you for reading, commenting, liking and sharing our posts. Thank you for staying with us and going back again and again to be inspired or motivated. Thank you, thank you and thank you!

Here are some of the things that made 2011 prosperous for AMSDaily.

AMSDaily hit close to 25, 000 views since June 14, 2011.

AMSDaily has featured 18 Saturday Success Stories and 2 special edition stories.

AMSDaily has partnered with 30 + 2 PLEDGERS and is now in the final stage of sending 15 selected high school students from the Tarlac College of Agriculture (Updates will be posted in late January upon completion of the project) for free.

AMSDaily has been interviewed and featured twice and has been nominated for 5 blog awards!

However, beyond these statistics and amazing events it was a fulfilling year for me personally:

- I turned 30!!!

- Met a lot of successful people who shared their stories with me and to you.

- Started my living-on-a-cash-basis only.

- Began reading and exploring the idea of minimalism even more.

I am as delighted, inspired, motivated and also prepared to embrace 2012 with greater hopes, dreams and more lives to be inspired. I am also excited to see what 2012 will bring to us all.
